Better than expected in Suffolk

Wheat harvest started yesterday at 16% moisture for Gerald Godfrey on Great Common Farm, Suffolk.

Yields of 8.75t/ha on the worst wheat fields were better than expected, so he hopes for 10t/ha on the good fields. Quality of Claire, Einstein and Consort were very good and he said they had not been damaged by the weather.

He added: “Thankfully the ground conditions are much better than last year so hopefully the yields will be better.”

  • Crop/Variety: Claire, Einstein and Consort winter wheat
  • Area: 8ha cut so far
  • Yield: 8.75t/ha
  • Quality: moisture 16%
